About me

Industry Human Resources
Occupation Wife and Mom
Location Shadow Hills, California, United States
Introduction I live in a rural pocket of Los Angeles and am a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a grammie. My family is my biggest joy. I simply love being a homemaker and sharing bits of our blessed ranch life here on my blog. Why "e-wife"? My husband nicknamed me that because I buy anything I can online. So, contrary to popular belief, the "e" actually stands for "electronic" and not "excellent" - though I do strive to be an excellent wife! ~ Proverbs 31:10
Interests I love spending time with my family and friends, hitting "Diners Drive-ins and Dives" and other food adventures with Rich, Grace Church, serving in Children's ministry, camping, traveling and visiting new places (love big cities like NY and Chicago), but I'd be happy spending every vacation in Maui. I love the outdoors and hiking, taking walks, the beach, and I would love to get back into skiing. I enjoy soap making reading good books and cooking magazines, gardening and cooking with fresh ingredients, drinking lattes and eating croissants, and also eating Asian food. I also love pedicures, pilates, and Paris.
Favorite Movies Napoleon Dynamite, Elf, The Princess Bride, Return to Me, National Treasure, Despicable Me, Night at the Museum, Anne of Green Gables series, Father of the Bride 1 & 2, Toy Story, (the new) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Pride and Predjudice and all those Jane Austin movies
Favorite Music Jeremy Camp, Adie Camp, Steven Curtis Chapman, Enfield, Keith and Kristyn Getty, Fernando Ortega, Third Day, Wicked the Musical Soundtrack, Phantom of the Opera Soundtrack, Carpenters and other selected 70's and 80's music. I never miss an episode of American Idol.

How do you pronounce the 'g' in bologna?

I don't. And I don't eat bologna either.
